Grace Bernal’s California Style: Embroidered

Style 09 08Autumn is just around the corner, and with that comes embroidered garments. This means embroidered bags, embroidered shirts, embroidered dresses and embroidered jackets are about to be a highly visible element of daily attire.  I am also seeing  embroidered shoes. This autumn embroidery is the trend! Embroidery is something that has been around a long time. Would you believe cultural anthropologists have traced this phenomenon all the way back to the Iron Age? The jackets with embroidery are stunning! Denim along with leather add a strong statement on the streets. Denim, in my view and just about everyone else’s, based on its popularity, looks spectacular embroidered. If you want to add to the hype, try a pair of embroidered leather lace-up boots to match. Also, accessories are trending, like handbags in stitch work and beaded embellishment. I think autumn is going to fill the streets with a hint of romanticism, and embroidery will lead the way. Enjoy!
